Invitation: Realizing Hybrid Storage - a FLEXINet workshop
03 oktober 2023 13:00 t/m 18:00 - Locatie: Co-creation Centre, The Green Village TU Delft Campus Van den Broekweg 4, Delft | Zet in mijn agenda
FLEXINet organizes a symposium on the impact of realizing hybrid storage on Tuesday 3 October. A hybrid energy storage system is being developed at district level in FLEXINet. Hybrid storage is created by heat storage and different battery technologies including electrical vehicle and innovative underground power electronics, to name some innovative elements of the project.
A demo is in preparation at The Green Village, TU Delft Campus. Currently, there are two knowledge gaps: current state of the art of storage technologies and integral hybrid storage: how are we going to manage this smartly? At this symposium, an overview is given of solutions that are being developed.
Please sign up before 1 October 2023.

We look forward to welcoming you on 3 October!
The Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy has allocated 5.7 million euro to FLEXINet. In the upcoming years, the FLEXINet consortium will develop hybrid energy storage systems – capable of storing both heat and electricity. Pavol Bauer, professor at TU Delft and project leader and coordinator: ‘The aim of FLEXINet is a system that accelerates the energy transition. We hope to make a substantial contribution to reaching climate targets by cleverly combining various techniques – think of blending recycled batteries with flexible heat pumps and the charging of electric cars.’
In the coming years, the Netherlands will dispense with natural gas extracted in Groningen. Legislation passed in 2018 already forbids the installation of gas connections in newly developed residential areas, encouraging property developers to implement sustainable solutions for heating these houses. Mobility – all movement of people, goods and energy – is undergoing a rapid transformation as well. According to the coalition agreement of 2017, all cars sold by 2030 must be zero-emissions vehicles. These developments are a threat to our electrical grid. The FLEXINet consortium wants to help forestall serious problems. Laura Ramirez Elizondo, assistant professor at TU Delft: ‘Soon, it will all be about cleverly combining various techniques. Think of linking a house’s solar panels to an in-home battery or of a smart charging station on your driveway that charges outside peak hours and that can feed energy back into the electrical grid.’
